Bright Stars Big Futures – Undergrads Shine at Elite Student Breakfast

Elite Student BreakfastSurrounded by the beauty of Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens, 60 of the School’s most talented students confirmed why the UNSW School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CVEN) is ranked amongst the top ten Civil Engineering schools in the world as they sought to impress some of Australia’s premier engineering and infrastructure companies and consultancies.

The CVEN Elite Student Breakfast held annually at the Botanic Gardens Restaurant provides members of the School’s Industry Partnership Program with an advantage to recruit our top Engineering and Surveying students into their industrial training, cadetship and graduate programs. This year students were given the opportunity to pitch themselves to representatives of 17 industry partners whose collective influence spans across the globe.  It was a heartening experience to witness the room in action as Australia’s next generation of engineers and surveyors, brimming with confidence, transformed their learning into practice, networking with some of Australia’s most seasoned engineering leaders and company reps. 

An initiative of the School’s External Relations Committee, the Elite Student Breakfast is one of a number of exclusive events in which our Industry Partners are invited to engage with our undergraduate students, offering their businesses a competitive advantage when vying to recruit Australia’s finest engineering talent.
